I'm not voting yes or not on this.
Couple of really dumb questions, hope someone will induldge me - I've asked before and got no real reply about these sorts of tracks - but I'll try again.
Playing games like this on iOS and Andriod - it's like a touch type game - you use your finger yes?
How do we know you played on iOS? I didn't see your finger in the video - heck I didn't even see the iPad.
Guessing you used some sort of iOS recording software - guess that's okay, but how do we know it was even a real iPad? How do we know it wasn't emulation.
Not having a go at your personally, just the fact that TG is allowing these sorts of records to be submitted for all. Just seems weird to me. Arcade players have to show they are using original hardware from nearly 40 years ago when they submit scores, but modern gamers don't event show they are using real hardware let alone controlling it with their hands.
Nice score btw. I'm sure you did do it on a real iPad, but I'm not willing to get credibility points just because everyone will most like yes vote it.
My personal opinion is that iPad and the Andriod platform are aimed at tablet games, and as such, the video should show the player playing it with their hands - not software capturing the video. /end
In the case of Crossy Road, the iOS version is the only version with an ingame recording option. This has, in the past, been sufficient proof that this was indeed performed on an iOS device. I don't know if there's an iOS emulator out there though?
congratulations on an impressive score. I haven't played this game for months as an update around xmas or early this year (can't remember, feels like ages) made the game unplayable for me. The app would crash all the time both on my iPhone 6s and my daughters iPad2. Have you had those problems?

I found TwinGalaxies via email, when I contacted Hipster Whale about possible official in game leaderboards/score events in CR or DCR, to which they replied they would love to introduce them in the future, but for now I could find the best official scores here in this website. So glad I found it, and I too hope some activity on Everyplay will spark some more interest in this really fun game. I am currently working on a road to PB series, with other ideas in mind over there my username is Jacob Spaulding.
Getting this score wasnt easy, I've only ever done better than that once, and that was when I got my PB of 1648. This is the best I've ever done while recording, though. If you don't want to push for higher scores I completely understand, it takes a lot of time, of which isn't always rediliy available these days (for my anyways). However, I can say with confidence, that I'm pretty sure the difficulty caps, or at least nearly levels off, around 1000-1200, after that it is sort of more about luck than skill, getting the right patching, and favorable forests can make all the difference. I hate using the term 'RNG'.... but I really do feel like it's mostly luck after a certain score, and seeing your replays on EveryPlay, I know you could best it eventually.
Good luck in all your future endeavors friend.
i thought the same thing too actually, watching some other scores on here where people had to show equipment I thought maybe just the screen capture wouldn't be enough. There is an option, I believe, to also record via front facing camera on the Crossy Road app, I could use that I guess, and play with a mirror in between myself and the device, allowing you to see the device is a regular iPad, with no other programs running or anything... then the gameplay would be inverted which may be weird... and it would add quite a bit to the upload size (and for me time), with a 11 min+ recording of both facecam and game play. With my internet it wouldn't work I'd say, which is why I didn't ask attempt it. Just the gameplay you see here took an hour and a half to upload. But I completely see where you're coming from, and understand your reasoning for not voting, thank you for the explanation, too.

I think I want to push for 1800 in the future... but for now I'm gonna focus on my road to PB series, and other games I think (unless someone beats this score right away, which would call for another attempt I think ;)).

When I record iOS runs I always have a screen capture of some type. Lately I've been mirroring to my PC then screen recording on the PC using OBS. I'm always sure to show the regulatory screen to prove it's an iPhone 6S and show the desktop and that no other apps are running.
Thanks! Great idea, next time I submit a run I'll for sure include some pics. Great idea with the PC mirror/OBS recording, too.
